Greetings! I am happy to announce that our papers and panels submissions for this year's conference are at all time high. Thank you for following our new procedure of paying your membership dues before your submission. This will allow you to have uninterrupted access to the website and the journal, and continue to keep our membership robust and growing.
For our members interested in all aspects of documentary, I am happy to report that we are collaborating with Cilect North America to provide a one-day pre-conference add on. This will be a unique opportunity for UFVA members to have a different pre-conference experience. Michael Kowalski, Associate Dean of the Dodge College of Film and Media Arts at Chapman University, will host this pre-conference event in D.C. The day will feature a documentary keynote speaker, exciting professional and academic panels, and distributors of documentary content from the D.C. area...
